World Art Day

The International Association of Art (UNESCO/IAA World Art Association) has declared tomorrow, April 15th, 2012 the first World Art Day. Apparently, the event will be celebrated worldwide. April 15th happens to be the date when Leonardo da Vinci was born (in 1452). It also happens to be the birthday of my mother, not related to da Vinci and not really related to art. Please, do not confuse this World Art Day with the International Museum Day which is celebrated on or around May 18th.

For the occasion, I delved into my photo archive and found an image of an installation created by the Italian artist, Fabrizio Plessi. The work was installed at the Aljub in Palma’s Es Baluard Museu d’Art Modern i Contemporani in 2004, called Il lavatori dell’anima, a modified version of an earlier installation called Bombay-Bombay. In 2011, Plessi did a rather splendid installation at Palma’s Llotja (Llaüt Light). The artist has lived and worked in Mallorca for a good twenty years, albeit on an intermittent basis. He owns a house on the island. He does not currently exhibit on the island but, he has one piece on permanent exhibition (Waterfall) at the Fundación Yannick y Ben Jakober in Sa Bassa Blanca near Alcúdia that you could visit at the International Museum Day in May, for instance.

The photo was chosen from my archive. It was taken in Palma, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: October 8th, 2004. The time was 20:00:14.
